When you are getting ready to come in for your newborn session, please feed baby just before you leave the house.  The goal is for baby to be nice and sleepy when s/he arrives to our studio.  Please bring extra milk, diapers, wipes and your preferred baby lotion to help with baby’s dry skin. A non-oily lotion is preferred to avoid shine. And know that baby will probably need to snack a few times during the session : )


Maternity sessions are best when you are 7-8 months pregnant.  For  newborns we need to photograph your new one within the first 7-10 days.  Most parents get their newborn session reserved 1-2 months before the due date and we adjust as needed with baby’s arrival.  If you are wanting an in-home/lifestyle session where baby doesn’t need to be tired and sleeping, those sessions can happen anywhere between birth and 2 months. We also offer homecoming videos with baby – view Kali’s video here!


When you show up for your newborn session – be prepared to relax! It isn’t uncommon for parents to get a little nap in if you want ; ) Once baby is nice and full, relaxed and ready to sleep, I {Karin} will take over to being getting baby comfy in a variety of poses on cute blankets and even in buckets. If you have particular hats or headbands for baby – please bring them! But please know most newborns look their best without clothes on ; )
